Beginning at the historic core of Bury St Edmunds, Abbeygate Street is home to a fabulous selection of independent stores including Javelin, Six and Trotter and Deane. Stocking brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Hugo Boss, you are guaranteed true quality and a bespoke service when enjoying a wander around these stores.


Designer lifestyle brands are not the only discoveries in Abbeygate Street and the surrounding area. Independents such as Quest, The Parsley Pot, Cabana as well as jewellers, Thurlow Champness and Sons and Preston and Duckworth are a number of established businesses in the town centre, continuing to serve generations of the Bury St Edmunds community.


With the continued growth of independent stores, national retailers are also wanting a piece of the high street in Bury St Edmunds. The arc Shopping Centre, a striking and modern centre, provides a juxtaposition between the old and new areas of Bury St Edmunds. The quirky shopping space is home to retailers including Topshop, Crew Clothing, Joules, Next and Debenhams and this Autumn they are welcoming new names to the town including Pandora and Bryon Burger, who specialise in making ‘proper hamburgers.’
